I'd like to see how Fletcher Cox performs. Haven't heard squat about him this year. Maybe he's hurt I dunno...

Ya fire Rivera already. Come onnnn

What did firing Hurney in the middle of the season accomplish?

It gave the team time to research and hire the best GM before the end of the season....the off season is the time when a good GM makes a difference.

It would also be very wise to have the GM in place before hiring a new coach.

The ONLY reason you would fire him now is if you really believed someone on your staff was a viable candidate. Chud and McD should not even be mentioned as possibilities.

So, based on a GM search and crappy coordinators, the smart thing to do us ride this season out with Rivera and then move on.

Not going to happen. We are going 4-12 in one shape or form and he will be fired soon after the final game

They need the new GM in place to hire a new coach.

Rivera will finish the season and we will have 4 wins. We will pick top 3 and next year there will be a new GM and a brand new coaching staff. That's it. Rivera will not be retained. If he thinks he might save his job with a win streak in the last 3 or 4 games, I highly doubt it. He does have one more year, but the losing culture on this team has got to be eradicated and he's done nothing to convince me he has an answer.

JR just isn't going to axe the guy. That's not his style. Besides...what's the worst that could happen? We don't win any more games and virtually guarantee a franchise pick. Big deal.

However, if JR doesn't put a viable product out there on the field within 3 years, this franchise could dry up. Seriously. It's time to put up or shut up for this team. The culture of losing will not be tolerated by fans indefinitely. 4 winning seasons in 17 is pathetic.

If this next GM and HC don't build a winner, I think the gig will be up. I definitely don't want that to happen, but LA sure does.

Rivera will only be fired if he starts cutting the wrong players (or impacting them negtively in some other way).
